Our friendly and perky neighborhood coffee-house is at it again. Not too long ago, their coffee baristas came knocking at our doors, delivering our purchased brews. Now, Starbucks wants to lure us to their joints to sip locally craft beers and our favorite red and white wines. Action begins at 4p.m. until closing time. They call it ‘Evenings’ at Starbucks.

In selected locations in South Florida, and dozens nationwide, Starbucks has added tempting protein bites like skewered chicken and meatballs with basil and sauce to their menus. They also will also be adding sides of truffle macaroni and cheese, bacon-wrapped dates and flat breads.

With everything, there is a cost factor. These small food plates cost $2.50 to $7.00. And, be prepared to fork out $5.00 to $6.00 for a craft beer. As for your favorite Pinot grigio, Pinot noir, Merlot, Sauvignon blanc, etc. those will put you back $8.00 to $14.00.

Guys, don’t worry, they promise the right ambiance. Bottoms up!!

    I think it’s kinda crazy, my Wine Bar is right across from a Starbucks. They haven’t started selling yet but pretty interesting none the less! Im curious to see how well they will do!

      Tess, I know. But, I wouldn’t worry. I’m sure yr faithful customers will continue to stop by you. Moreover, In the long run, great customer service will stand out. At the same time,profit is the name of the game. Thus, I would check out their estab. and see what they’ve to offer. A little competition is good. Perhaps, you could lure even some of their customers in yr doors by offering attractive deals. Maybe get a musician e.g. jazz singer or pianist to liven up yr place. The sky is the limit. Maybe, have a ‘speed-dating’ night. You’ll never know! It could be a ‘win/win’.

      Thanks for stopping by my blog. Good luck and cheers!!
